Thread: VMWare Tools and OpenSuse 11.4

    Default VMWare Tools and OpenSuse 11.4

    Hi All,

    I have opensuse 11.4 32bit install as a vm on vmware esxi 4.1. I have used opensuse a lot on vmware. I just built a new vm with 11.4, have everything setup and working, but when I install the vmware tools, I get an error message that is flooding my messages log. This is the error:

    tpvmlpd[24522]: device type not supported
    tpvmlpd[24523]: device type not supported
    tpvmlpd[24466]: aborting
    vmsvc[1997]: [ warning] [guestinfo] Failed to get vmstats.

    Any ideas.

    Thank you.

    Wise penguin? Really?

    Come on, how can you honestly believe that answer is helpful at all. First, have you looked at the increased licensing costs for vSphere 5 compared to vSphere 4? You can't just tell someone to go upgrade their entire virtual infrastructure incurring significant costs and call that an answer. Second, the problem has nothing to do with ESX[i] at all. It has everything to do with the open-vm-tools package not being complied with procps support built in which isn't a serious issue.
